The Glam Wall Accent Reveal!

 This wallpaper was made to go with this mirror it seems~
I never was a big fan of accent walls, but that has taught me the 
lesson of "never say never".
 A rich greeny blue with old gold damask pattern that 
changes from light to dark like a hologram.
Sometimes it looks soft other times it looks bold. 
 It looks really pretty with pink accents
 This dressed up old world looking paper came from 
none other than Lowes!  It caught my eye and held me in 
the aisle and wouldn't let me go.  
So I kept staring at it and finally determined it 
 would look lovely used inside my office desk for a little surprise.
 But it turned out this wallpaper was determined
 to be center stage, not some after thought in an upstairs desk.
Two hours later here it was, all pasted to this wall!
 After all, it looked like the perfect
 companion to my chairs and the mirror in the room.
 It played nicely with pink too~
 It gave this space that glam lift every room can use a tad of~
 If I did the entire room it would swallow it up alive,
but on this one wall it adds a sophisticated touch.
I won't have to tell anyone it came from Lowes, 
unless I want to share this secret (like I did with all my blog buddies)
The dining room isn't done yet~
I have another surprise waiting in the wings!

Your accent wall is beautiful. That wallpaper really does look like it's meant for the room. The colors blend so well. Love the furniture in the room, too!

Just beautiful! I am in love with those colors too!

Wow! It really was made for that room and the mirror-perfection!

That is gorgeous, Amy. OH, another surprise. Can't wait.

Very chic! I have an accent wall in my house too and everyone always loves it. Mine is just painted though, not as glamerous as yours! I ♥ it!

I love how it turned out. I think you chose the perfect spot for it. It adds such a romantic touch to your feminine and romantic dining room. I would never guess that it came from Lowes either. It looks like it came from a premiere wallpaper store that designers use. I'm so jealous that you know how to do that so well. I don't have the patience for wallpaper.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Gorgeous, Amy! The wallpaper is perfect with the mirror and your other accessories. Beautiful.
xo, Sherry

So, I was messing around on Pinterest, and i saw this fabulous mirror, and i thought, "that looks alot like Amy's mirror", but there was this crazy gorgeous wallpaper behind it, and then i look, and it IS you... and lord almighty, you have wallpapered a wall before i even got to read the new blog post. Amy, that wall looks incredible! OMG... Nothing could work better together than the grouping you have going there.. and i DO love the way the pink plays with it... !

Oh my gosh, how perfect is that with your mirror, Amy! It was definitely meant to go there and not in your office bookshelves, for sure! It really is a nice color and pattern for this while. Good job listening to your gut and getting it! : )

Victorian1885 said...

What wonderful wallpaper! Your room looks so elegant!

Connie (aka LOU) said...

Amy -
Oh this is so pretty. Definitely magazine worthy. Makes me want to change all my colors to this combination. That punch bowl is very cool too. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I guess Boston is a little too far to wallpaper an accent wall :)
Stay warm.

Amy ~ this looks just beautiful! I don't have any accent walls in my home, at least not like this, but I have been thinking of doing an elegant accent wall on the wall behind our bed. I think your post has sealed the deal! Thanks for the inspiration! By the way, was this the only color this wallpaper came in? ~Stacy~

Perfect...it makes the room. I also love your beautiful table runner on the chest. This is a georgous space ~ so pretty!

Nann from At Nann's Table said...

Amy this truly is gorgeous. I so agree about a accent wall for it. But really this is stunning. I bet you have to go in there every couple of minutes and stare at it and enjoy it and just pinch yourself that you did this beautiful thing. Hey...I love it. Just love it. And I'm sure you and your family do too!! Well done Mon aimee.

Nann

Debbie said...

Wow! that paper was meant for that wall, Amy!! The frame on the mirror matches perfectly...so does the runner, and everything else in the room...amazing! Wise choice.
Beautiful.
xxxooo

Sharon in Chicago said...

Absolutely yummy! What blows my mind the most is that the mirror looks like it was colorized to match the wallpaper rather than it being a happy circumstance -- well, that and your eye for finding the best in unexpected places.

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

Wow! Love that wallpaper and I never would have guessed Lowe's. I usually don't care for an accent wall but this looks fantastic with your chest and mirror. As usual...great job!

janet said...

Good Morning Amy,

You are so right ...the paper goes beautifully with your other items in this pretty room. Good Choice to use it as an accent wall.

Love the fact that it came from Lowe's because that tells me it was affordable and that a good thing.

Have a great weekend and I look forward to the next surprise.

I sense a magazine cover in your future Amy!! How gorgeous does that look! It is PERFECT and found its perfect homes. The colors flow together sooo beautifully, you did good, my talented friend!

Gail said...

I love your dinning room and that accent wall is gorgeous Amy. I can't wait to see the other surprise. Have a wonderful weekend, Gail

Anonymous said...

Very nice. It gives the room sophistication. I've always liked accent walls...depending how it's done. Sometimes it's the finishing touch a room needs. When working with a room that doesn't have any architectural detail....like so many of the newer homes...this adds some detail the room needs. I'm sure your walking in there often just to admire your work.

Lori said...

Just fabulous and I want to see those little funky lights lit up at night too.

Lana said...

Looks awesome. Just proves beauty can be found in lots of places and is not always determined by price.

Marriage made in heaven I say.

Love the runner as well.

p.s. I was so touched to read that you sent Nita money to help her get her new boy.... you are a puppy angel indeed!

mwaxter said...

What a gorgeous room, I love that wallpaper and the color is so pretty. What beautiful pictures, it looks like something out of Country Living's or Victoria's pages. Have you ever featured your home in a magazine?

Loribeth said...

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I love your accent wall in your dining room! I thought I was looking at Sharon Osbourne's dining room at first. I am obsessed with her dining room!!!

Connie said...

Amy, your vision for decor always amazes me and you've really done it this time! The wallpaper is fabulous and adds such a dramatic punch. Your dining room has evolved over time but it looks as if it were all planned together. Simply beautiful.

Tardevil said...

Love the wallpaper. It is perfect for the space! That mirror is gorgeous, too. Did you paint it?
I think I have one in my garage just like it that could use some love. Love the bluish shade on it.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Hi Tardevil~I tried writing back to you, but you have a protected email, so here is your answer:
Yes I painted it...it was dark brown and I think it is some kind of carved plastic or molded plastic from the 50s...it weighs a ton. I spray painted it taupe and then I used acrylic craft paints and some metallic paints and painted it like I was painting a do it by numbers painting! It was really fun. Originally I painted it hot pink and then put an antique wax over it and silver accents and it got rave reviews...but then I wanted it in the bluey greens so I did it over.

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

Amy! Seriously??? This is GORGEOUS!!! It does play well with pink and everything else in this room!! I seriously LOVE it! The runner on your buffet also just takes my breath! SO GORGEOUS!

Lou Cinda ;)
